Sinkhole Station was a space station located in the Maw. It was similar in appearance to Centerpoint Station, but much smaller. Sinkhole Station was home to the Mind Walkers, a group of Force-sensitives who were able to separate their minds from their bodies in order to travel in the realm of the Force known as beyond shadows.
In 43.5 ABY, Luke Skywalker and his son Ben visited the station during their quest to discover more about Darth Caedus' fall to the dark side of the Force. Soon after the Skywalkers arrived, a Sith strike team traveled to the station to confront the Grand Master. The station was later destroyed by the dark side being known as Abeloth.
It was believed by Luke Skywalker that the Celestials were responsible for the creation of the Maw, including Sinkhole Station. After the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jedi Knight Jacen Solo traveled throughout the galaxy for five years to train with several Force sects in hopes of gaining a greater understanding of the Force. During this sojourn, he traveled to this station, where he met with the Mind Walkers, a group of Force-sensitives inhabiting the station who were able to separate their minds from their physical bodies in order to travel to a realm of the Force known as beyond shadows. During his time at Sinkhole Station, Solo traveled beyond shadows with the Mind Walkers.
In 43.5 ABY, two years after Solo's fall to the dark side of the Force and transformation into the Sith Lord Darth Caedus, Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben Skywalker, embarked on a quest to discover more about Solo's fall to the dark side. Their journey led them to Sinkhole Station, where they met with the Mind Walkers. They also found Qwallo Mode, a Jedi Knight who had disappeared in the Maw two years earlier and had been presumed dead. The Skywalkers learned from the Mind Walkers how to travel beyond shadows. While in the realm, Luke encountered a being called Abeloth, who wished to speak with him, but Luke declined. Later, the Grand Master and his son also spoke with the spirits of Anakin Solo, Mara Jade Skywalker, and Jacen Solo.
Soon after the Skywalkers returned from beyond shadows, a strike team of Sith arrived on the station, determined to kill Luke. The Sith ambushed the Jedi, and in the resulting battle all but one of the Sith were killed. The strike team's sole survivor, apprentice Vestara Khai, fled the station for Dathomir, and the Skywalkers left Sinkhole in pursuit.
As Abeloth gained power, she managed to break free of her prison, obliterating the Station. Soon after, a joint Jedi and Sith strike team under the command of Skywalker and Sith High Lord Sarasu Taalon embarked on a mission to eliminate Abeloth. However, they found the station completely destroyed. Deciding to go straight to her homeworld, they noticed that the black holes surrounding the planet were moving away, and they speculated that the station may have been built by the Celestials to contain Abeloth.
